Product information: P6T Deluxe Intel X58 (Socket 1366) PCI-Express DDR3 MotherboardFulfilling demand for users that require a motherboard able to achieve extraordinary overclocking capability, ASUS, world-leader in motherboard production, has unveiled the new ASUS P6T DELUXE amid high user expectation. This innovative motherboard utilizes Intel's latest platform, and features the exclusive ASUS Super Hybrid Engine concept that encompasses the TurboV and EPU technologies to deliver the twofold benefits of overclocking and power efficiency. TurboV is an advanced overclocking application that enables easy overclocking without the need to exit or reboot the operating system; while the EPU automatically provides users exceptional power efficiency. Equipped with Super Hybrid Engine, users will enjoy the best overclocking environment and address environmental concerns at the same time.
The P6T DELUXE adopts the usage of TurboV-an advanced overclocking tool that utilizes a micro-controller to provide precise overclocking adjustments, and allow users to conveniently adjust the CPU ratio (multiplier)* for instant CPU upgrades for real-time performance enhancements. TurboV can also provide adjustments to the NB voltage, NB-PCIe voltage, CPU PLL voltage and DRAM voltage in 0.02V micro-intervals. These precise overclocking options make it easier for hardcore users to fine-tune their overclocking settings and strive for enhanced results with reduced failure rates. Furthermore, TurboV is able to do all this without exiting the operating system or rebooting! This unprecedented achievement allows users to achieve new overclocking records in real-time-allowing them to quickly adjust their overclocking settings "on-the-fly" and open a benchmarking program like 3DMark Vantage to obtain their scores immediately.
In lieu of the current trend towards power efficiency, the P6T DELUXE also utilizes the ASUS exclusive EPU technology. This hardware-based feature controls 6 major components: the CPU, VGA card, memory, chipset, hard drives, and the CPU cooler/system fan. Equipped with a database containing all of the Intel CPU profiles, the EPU intelligently identifies and selects the correct CPU profile and calibrates the best possible settings to ensure the best power management. In terms of the Chipset and Memory, the EPU provides enhanced power efficiency - improving thermal capabilities, enhances system stability to provide longer component lifespan and higher overclocking capability. As for VGA cards, the EPU automatically detects system loading and adjusts the VGA card's voltage and frequency-saving up to 37%** VGA power during everyday computing. With clever monitoring of the hard disk and fans, power wastage is reduced during periods of idling data access-helping to minimize hard drive and fan noise for quieter acoustics.
The breakthrough 16+2 phase VRM design present on the P6T DELUXE encompasses 16-phases for the vCore and an added 2-phase for QPI/Memory controller inside the CPU. With high quality power components such as low RDS (on) MOSFETs, Ferrite core chokes with lower hysteresis loss and 100% Japan-made high quality conductive polymer capacitors, ultimate durability, power efficiency and performance are ensured.
